  • Follow Crime & courts

A Martinez woman told deputies her wallet – containing nearly $9,000 in cash – was taken Thursday from an Augusta hotel room.

Luara Beasley, 33, of the 400 block of Prescott Drive in Martinez, said the wallet was stolen between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. from a hotel room at 3039 Washington Road, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office incident report.

In addition to $8,900 in cash, Beasley’s wallet contained her driver’s license, Social Security card, birth certificate and two checks worth $200 each.

Beasley told authorities that only family members and a woman staying in the room next to hers had been inside her room during the time when the theft occurred.
